Cucumber Cool by ayzewi Cucumber Cool by ayzewi
An OpenCanvas sketch of a secondary character that might eventually make main character status.. Canden Lowski.
Actually, sketch is what it was. Now it's inked in OC and then colored in Painter 7. I played with the colors and lights a little bit to try and make it less dull and more interesting. I feel as though I have a habit of making color dull and gritty.
Tried to be vibrant with this'un, in spite of the fact it doesn't exactly suit the character. Canden is witty yet cynical, helpful yet spiteful, a romantic yet uncaring of what he does emotionally to the people he's tried to romance. I know it doesn't make sense, but generally he has good intentions when it comes to being a doctor (which he is a brilliant one), yet when it comes to matters of the heart, he could care less about the girl and cares only for making himself feel good.
I'd write out examples, but that'd take a while.

OC and Painter 7 fun, yo.

The colors on this one are possibly the best I've ever seen you do, Lighting-wise especially!
The whole image just jumps right out at you, I especially like the blue lighting underneath, like hes standing in an aquarium or something.

Random fact -- Cucumbers, on average, are 4F hotter in the inside than the current ambient temperature

I wonder what the deal is with that "Cool as a cucumber" saying, then?

I usually don't like two colored hair like that but you've manage to find the perfect tones of both. Very nice!

His pose reminds me of Sasuke (Naruto), it's that cool kind of pose that say something like 'screw the world'. (Yes I am a Naruto fan, like so many others...)

Keep it up! =)

I adore complex and selfish characters :giggle: This is excellent so much so that it's probably the first description I made the effort to read just to know mroe about the character in a very long time. :>
